Very good time. Low season (late August) and thus not much guests, almost alone.
The pool was literally hot in the afternoon, slightly cooler in the morning.
The beach was just wonderful. Thanks to isolated location and the water-break there were no tourists wandering through the beach. There is some water-sport equipment. My kids did not get down from the canoe :) One observation - there are some sharp stones and I even scratched my palm once. But these stones are far during the high tide. Any way the sea was better during the high tide.
Plus, there is a small playground for kids away from the beach near the reception.
We stayed in the family bungalow with two bedrooms and one living room. The living room had comfortable bamboo furniture (sofa and armchairs). Only one drawback - the roof is made of palm branches and there is no ceiling. Insects we falling occasionally :) And obviously mosquitoes had good access from outside. There are mosquito nets, but I just don't like to use them - they make me feel claustrophobic :)
There are seafront rooms located almost at the beach and that provide excellent sea view.
The breakfast was limited on the first day - possibly due to little number of guests, but very substantial on the next morning with more guests. It was good.
I drive a car - so there was no problem with access to the main street with all the restaurants and whatever. It's just a few minutes drive. But if you need tranquility it's only for good.
